Are England's Catholic bishops stalling the Anglican ordinariate?

Catholic World News - January 18, 2012

William Oddie of London's Catholic Herald questions whether the Catholic bishops of England are deliberately discouraging the growth of the new Anglican-Catholic ordinariate. This is, Oddie notes, a charge that Damian Thompson of the Daily Telegraph has advanced for months.

In England, Oddie observes, the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham has celebrated the first anniversary of its founding, but still has not been assigned a principal church. In the US, the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter was only formally established on January 1 of this year, but has already been given a principal church in Houston.
